Broncos interested in John Fox extension, per report

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The Broncos will hope to extend head coach John Fox this offseason.

The Denver Broncos have made signing head coach John Fox to a contract extension an offseason priority, according to a report from CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

The Broncos are currently the top team in the AFC, one year after going 8-8 and losing to the New England Patriots in the divisional round of the postseason. Denver has had the NFL's most dangerous offensive attack this season behind quarterback Peyton Manning, using a record-setting offense and a strong defense to get to a 11-3 season with two weeks remaining.

Fox began his coaching career as an assistant moving up through the college ranks before being hired as a defensive backs coach with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1989. After four years as the New York Giants defensive coordinator, Fox was hired as the Carolina Panthers head coach, taking the team to the playoffs three times in nine seasons -- including an appearance in Super Bowl XXXVIII that ended in a Tom Brady comeback win for the New England Patriots.

The Broncos signed Fox to a four-year contract in 2012 worth $3.5 million each season, one of the cheaper coaching contracts in the NFL.
